We recently became the proud owners of a 1976'ish C-120. When we purchased the tractor it wouldn't start but the previous owner believed this was due to a faulty solenoid.
Anyhow, I finally had time today to see if it would run. On initial inspection, there was a definite 'click' on attempting to start. And after a few attempts, the starter turned the engine over and it fired - so I think we actually have a 'sticky' starter, rather than a dodgy solenoid? Anyhow, I then took the tractor for a 'spin', and not knowing how long the fuel I had put in might last, after about 30 minutes the engine spluttered to a halt. Oh dear out of fuel
I filled the tank with what fuel I had left in my can, but on attempting to restart, the engine turns over but refuses to fire.
Having run out of fuel, is there some sort of 'priming' process that I need to go through before I will be able to get the engine to fire again?
Any advice gratefully received.

Two (2) very good Wisconsin Heavy Duty all Cast Iron Block engines, 8 & 12HP Horizontal Shaft 1" and 1 1/8th" Shaft Tractor Engines.
12HP has has Electronic CDI Ignition, 8HP has Point & Condenser ignition both with electric start via a belt driven Delco Remy Gen/Starter. Both Engines have Full Power, Start easily (have compression release) and neither smokes. Both Carburetors are good. Both came out of a Bolen's Tractors and come with the mounted Power Drive multi-Pulleys. They can be installed on any model tractor which uses a Horizontal shaft engine, John Deere, Cub Cadet, Bolen's, Wheel Horse and Sears Suburban etc. . Engines can be seen started and run at my home in Brewster, NY and both are sold "as is".
Note: If you are really interested reply with your name and e-mail i.d. and I will send you a video of the engine you want started and running.
